You Defended the Dam!

Make Your Mark is Babson's annual giving day. This year we set an ambitious goal of 2,020 donors in 24 hours. The Babson community not only blew past that number with 2,358 total donors, but Defended the Dam like never before! The total amount given was a record-breaking $724,674—more than double the amount ever raised during our annual giving day! Dam impressive.

  • YOU unlocked an additional $100,000 from President Spinelli and his wife Carol.
  • YOU gave from 41 states and 41 countries—even from regions facing devastating fires, hurricanes and recent COVID surges.
  • YOU committed to your giving, with 142 donors becoming loyal Babson Defenders with a recurring gift that is vital to our College.
  • YOU gave when you hadn’t before; 306 of you made your first gift ever to Babson.

And you did all of this during a pandemic. We are astonished by the generosity shown. Thank you for believing in the power of a Babson education, and for defending our students and college when we needed you most. You not only helped us give the year 2020 a run for its money, you dared it to stop Babson! (Not possible.) With the strength and support of the Babson family behind us there’s nothing we can’t achieve, together.

We are #DamGrateful

The Babson family always comes through, but this show of support for our students and College was unprecedented, particularly during a year that has been challenging for everyone. Thank you!
